I think the story and the magic of the Beatles grow the more I read how they became what they became. That they were a product of what went before and what was going on around them. That there were enormous chunks of luck that got them to where they were. But luck they had the attributes to take advantage of.  I don't now needed to think they were some super musical geniuses who sprang into being to change music. The real story is much more interesting in my opinion.

And all the fêted artists of all eras; Mozart, Puccini, Shakespeare, had stories much more interesting than that they were simply gifted geniuses.

Very well put Moog! I don't just love The Beatles for their music but also for their sociological impact and how they fit into history.

Anyways, I love the Beatles and I believe they had some magic amongst themselves, but they don't hold a monopoly on modern music like a ton of people think.

Um, sir, I beg to differ with you:

...but as Beatle fans we do tend to credit The Beatles with inventing the wheel.

Kevin, you have just obliterated all knowledge I have ever held sacred and crushed my world!!! You mean The Beatles DIDN'T invent the wheel?! O.M.G!  ;D

Rather than them remaining market leaders whose quality control would have steered the industry away from such an unimaginitive, lazy practise  ;)

I think the Beatles were a product of the 1960's more than the 1960's a product of the Beatles. So I don't believe in your theory.

Thank the Lord, The Beatles were around when they were as, if The White Album had been released in 1982, they'd have released seven singles off it.....and the need to produce new music like 'Get Back', 'Ballad of John & Yoko' and 'Abbey Road' would have been unnecessary, and would probably have never existed.

You're falling into that trap again.

Assuming that the market which evolved after The Beatles era would have prevailed anyway, had they stayed together....

Moore deserved her Oscar™ - a great performance. Sad story, but a fine film.

And speaking of The Chiffons, One Fine Day is something I could listen to on a loop 10-20 times in a row, no problem. Just a perfect recording.
